Sandy was a committed mother, proud “Mimi” and loving friend. She will always be remembered for her bright smile and accepting and loving nature towards others. Even while fighting cancer her family remained her ultimate priority, and she was happiest when surrounded by them.
In earlier years, Sandy was a dedicated member of the Ruritan Club of Harrison and enjoyed running concessions. She was a proud softball mom, never missing a game. Her recent hobbies were gardening, estate sales, cheering on the Tennessee Volunteers and caring for many Malti-poo puppies.
The family sends a special "thank you" for the excellent care and treatment Sandy received from Tennessee Oncology of Cleveland, Dr. An Tran, MD.; nurses: Barbara, Maraline, Dee, Heather and Wes. They are thankful her final days were peaceful with the help of the Fourth-Floor nurses and doctors of Tennova Healthcare and Hospice of Chattanooga.
